North Star Trilogy ~ Book One

Second chances at lost love are rare. Years after they drifted apart, Hugo and Kevin’s passion easily reignites, but finding where Hugo fits in Kevin’s complex life is a challenge.

A love story with a seventeen-year intermission.

Hugo Thorson fell in love when he was sixteen. He’s maybe been in love since, but probably not. He’s been too busy directing plays to devote much time to men who can’t accept all of him. No one ever made him feel like his first love did.

Kevin Magnus married a woman and has two children, but the marriage wasn’t happy. In the shadow of divorce, he’s striving to be a better father, but he’s still a work in progress.

When Hugo and Kevin bump into each other at the lake, memories of their last kiss incite a new first kiss. Visions of the life they always wanted are vivid, but so much stands in the way of their dreams. Hugo is out and proud but no one knows Kevin’s bisexual. If Kevin comes out, he risks losing custody of his kids. If he doesn’t walk hand in hand with Hugo, he risks losing the love of his life.

The curtain may never rise on their second act.

    Ok, so the heartstrings have been plucked, played, whatever other word you want to use. Holy cow! Such a good, good book. And I’m ready to hurry up and read book 2, but I may not survive if anything happens to these two. They’ve been through a lot already.

    I don’t know which of these two I felt the most for. I love them both but man, do I feel bad for them. Both feel the constraints of the environment around them. Whether it be family, school, the town, whatever. Neither were really allowed to be free. Oh, Hugo had it a little better as far as home. Before he lost his father, Hugo got some heartfelt advice from him that let him know his dad knew he was gay and it was ok. All Kevin ever got was pressure. Pressure to be just so, to make money off of anything, to make sure appearances were always good. And heaven forbid, he had a friend that didn’t meet his father’s standards. But together, they finally were able to let go. They could be free to just be with each other. For two years, it wasn’t the best of situations, seeing as they had to hide their relationship, but they were at least together. They were each other’s first loves. But college and life separated them. For seventeen years, they’d been apart. Living their lives but often thinking of each other. And fate had a way of making sure they got to see each other again.

    I don’t know how I’d react if I got to see my first love again. I think after the shock I’d be scared to death. Time isn’t always kind and I’d be terrified of what they thought. If they were disgusted or happy or what. Fortunately for these two, time had been kind. And it was like picking up where they left off. Like time never got away from them. But of course, with time, lots of things change. And both were terrified. Kevin had gotten married, had kids, and no one knew he was really bisexual. Thanks to his father, he felt he had to bury that side of himself forever. Hugo was out and proud, and although there was no part of himself he was ashamed of, other people felt differently. And usually he was taunted, made fun of, jeered, etc. Most people didn’t want to date him either because of it.

    Both Hugo and Kevin had things to overcome. Fears, doubts. But then love they had for each other never changed. It seemed to grow deeper. But they have to get past everything, or what they have may never get off the ground again.

    Such a good book. I cannot stress this enough. And I’m so ready to see what comes next in their lives.
